Hey all eds hope you are doing well!

I know you don't do predictions ed001 just wondering your thoughts ahead of the game? You must be loving the idea if Your 2 favourite current managers go head to head, if I'm not mistaken. Excited to see what bielsa can do in the premier League?

Personally think this will be a really tough game with Leeds fresh and raring to go after a 16 year wait.

How would everyone start the game my team would be ally, trent, VVD robbo. Fab, milner. Then taki behind the front three. Considering the short break feel like a kid at Christmas.

{Ed001's Note - it is a really tough start to be honest. The team that comes up after winning the Championship are always high on confidence and raring to go. Added to that there has been no proper pre-season for anyone, so no one is actually close to being 100% bang on. This whole season is the hardest to call of all time, as you won't know who will be available at any given game. Unfortunately it is not going to benefit managers like Bielsa, who are usually meticulously prepared. There is no real preparation you can do this season, as the games are too close together.}

Thanks for the reply mate. Agreed probably the worst time to face Leeds. It's going to be a really interesting season I think. Hopefully it won't be plagued with positive tests and we can begin to get some fans back in the stadiums. Players and staff are going to have to do all they can to stay fit and healthy. Injuries are going to play a massive part this year with clubs playing every few days. A player out for a couple of weeks with an inuury or a positive test could miss 4 or 5 games some big upsets on the cards.

{Ed001's Note - it is going to be very messy that is for sure but it should ensure no one runs away with it. Could end up with a lot of shock results I agree.}

Two identical teams that like to press and dominate the ball also are experts in playing out from the back. Kalvin Philips is their cog in midfield while Pablo Hernandez is their David Silva.

LFCSTE, while I admire your ability to think outside the box, I think I would still use the maximum 11 players to start and add Gomez to the defence at the very least :)

My Team would actually be: Ally, Trent, Gomez, VVD, Robbo, Fabinho, Wijnaldum, Jones, Mane, Salah, Firmino.

11 Sep 2020 16:41:23
I'm expecting us to win 4-0 😀.

I seem to recall us playing the promoted champions first game last season too. That didn't work out too badly for us.

You Darn Right, Thunderbird 2.

11 Sep 2020 17:53:29
Do you think he will go with Minamino or Keita or neither? Think the rest of the team picks itself.

11 Sep 2020 18:16:10
Hahaha didn't notice Davey. Gomez alongside virgil.

11 Sep 2020 19:01:08
Davey, I’d go with Ally, Trent, Gomez, VVD, Robbo, Fabinho, Wijnaldum, Henderson, Mane, Salah, Firmino. I think Henderson’s leadership, experience and energy will be important in this match.

11 Sep 2020 20:02:33
There’s no way hendo starts this match. Probably comes on after 70mins when we’re still in lockdown mode strolling around at 0-0.

11 Sep 2020 21:46:40
I think Milner has to start. Most reliable midfield for a tough, likely sloppy game. 1-0 scrappy win with a Milner penalty to seal it.

11 Sep 2020 22:50:35
Good man Irish Rover that's exactly the attitude that I want to see on here from tomorrow on YNWA.

11 Sep 2020 23:03:17
I think we'll get the win but won't steam roll them.

12 Sep 2020 01:05:29
I think keita and gini will play in midfield with fabinho. Leeds like to press the opposition so keita can be useful with his ability to carry the ball and break the lines with his agility. Gini is so strong in possession also at retaining the ball from pressing players which we need. The likes of Milner and Henderson for me would be better options to come from the bench hopefully at a stage where we want to protect a lead. Our strongest back 4 and front 3 pick themselves. Minamino, matip, origi, Brewster, hendo and Milner id have as our 6 outfield players selected as subs.

12 Sep 2020 09:20:27
I can see Leeds scoring, but I think we’ll hit them with two late goals. 3-1. Enjoy the game everyone!

Utd at 17/1 and Chelsea at 13/1 are very good odds for a messy season.
